Week 6: Threads sometimes includes a sketchbook of design ideas with technique or design articles, without providing full instructions for the designs shown. These sketchbooks:

  • Inspire me to try the design ideas shown
  • Interest me but don’t provide enough information for me to create the designs sh
  • Encourage me to create new designs of my own
  • Don’t interest me

I need another option:  interest me and do provide enough information for me to do it.          Especially the raincoat.     rjf

Drat! I didn't realize that the second option ("don't provide enough information") was too long for the given reponse field. It should say:


"Interest me, but don't provide enough information for me to create the designs shown."


Sorry about that. I think by the end of the 9 weeks I'll finally know how to do this poll thing!

Always love seeing the multiple variations on a theme!!  This is the "outside the box" type diagraming that interests me most.  I like see all the possibilities you have come up with and comparing them to all the ideas I have.


More of this type of article please.

Oh ya, I LOVE the variation sketches that accompany some articles.  I start to salivate as soon as I see them!!! :-) They really get the old creative juices going!  It must be one of those right-brained, arty things, because I find the sketches do more for my imagination than if you had included "thumbprint" photos instead.  I love, love, love the sketches!!!

Dear Carol,


I don't have the knowledge or the time to design from scratch but I am capable of making these kind of design changes to existing patterns.  Your article on fringing is helping me recreate the current fringed edge  Chanel style jacket.  I have used Heather Claus's articles to inspired me on several occasions.  I think that both these types of articles and those that are more detailed are both valuable and inspiring.
